    1. 1. Earthquake Data B y : A d a m D a b a l d o
    2. 2. Part 3 Step 2 Question 2Q:What do you notice about the distribution of theseearthquakes?A: The earthquakes are distributed all on theboundary lines.
    3. 3. Part 3 Step 2 Question 3Q: How does the distribution of theseearthquakes compare to others?A: That they are all in groups against theConvergent Boundary. And they are more nearthe oceans.
    4. 4. Part 3 Step 2 Question 5Q: What type of plate boundary is associated with earthquakes that have amagnitude of 7.0 or greater?A: The occur by Convergent boundaries.
    5. 5. Part 3 Step 3 Question 4Q: What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles of aconvergent plate boundary?A: 613 out 1286 of 48% of big earthquakes occur within 100 miles ofconvergent plate boundaries.
    6. 6. Part 3 Step 3 Question 5Q:What Percentage of big earthquakes occur within 200 miles of aconvergent plate boundary?A: 977 out of 1286 so that is 76% of big earthquakes occur within 200 milesof a convergent plate boundary.
    7. 7. (Initial) Ten places I think that will get a earthquake sometime in the future:CaliforniaAlaskaChinaChilePeruItalyRussiaJapanKazakhstanIndonesia
    8. 8. Places that I think are overdue for anAlaska earthquake:ChileJapanCaliforniaSaudi RarbiaRussiaChinaSpainBrazilUnited Kingdom
    9. 9. New List:
    10. 10. What new technology doscientists have to predict earthquakesNew Technology: Scientists have satellites that can detectearthquakes days and even weeks before they occur.
    11. 11. is going to havethe next big earthquake.
    12. 12. Overall:I have learned a lot about earthquakes. I have learned that earthquakesare caused by tectonic plates moving/shifting and creating what we callan earthquake. It helps when scientists can tell through satellites whenan earthquake is going to hit, by doing that they can give out a warning tothe people.Earthquakes usually occur along the plate boundary lines because thetectonic plates are always moving and that is why earthquakesparticularly occur along the place boundary line.
